About the only thing I determined is that I need some proper testing equipment for general water conditions.

Going have to start looking seriously....

Been in the 40s and rainy all week here.

Actually was 50 then 60 Monday and Tuesday so that foot of snow we got two weeks ago all melted then we got 3 or 4 inches of rain. We have severe flooding all around here. Roads shut down because they have washed out, bridges collapsing, they shut down main Street in the next town over because they are worried the three or four bridges in town will collapse with water levels so high. Crazy weather. Stupid people still driving through standing water having their cars stall out. Idiots who see bridge clearance signs that say 10 ft 6 inches, but there is only 4 ft of clearance meaning there is over 6 ft of water and they still try to drive through it so their entire cars are under water..

I miss the snow ;)

What turned I to just a twitchy lower back turned into some nasty 48 hour bug that just dropped us down like dominoes. That is my one and done for the 2018 year (hopefully) and just finally started moving around yesterday (Sun-Mon immobile).

But the animals still had to be looked after......

So, just about caught ip with the various Honey-dos, so I thought I would do some work on the GH.

Plumbed in a barrell so I could start circulating the water on a separate loop.

It got really hot when working, so I decided to take off my secondary plastic for the water temperature is now @ 71-72. Already planning for a shade cloth area.

The existing herd:

Added the other 18 from inside the house.
Batch #1

Batch #2

Wish I could get my GH here.
Image

Inside house:
PH= 7.0
NH3 = .25ppm
NO2 = 0
NO3 = ~80-160ppm

Greenhouse:

PH ~7.0-8.0 (keep adding muriatic acid but something keeps buffering, but slowly chipping away and getting closer to neutral.

@7:30pm
PH = 7.05 (meter reading)
PH ~7.0-7.2 (pond master)
NH3 = .25ppm
NO2 = .25ppm
NO3 = 0

I also moved my media from my SUFF to the end of the line to make the IBC a settling tank. 1 blue barrell a radial flow settler. I will play with making the discharge from cleanout to a mineralization tank. The 2nd/3rd are MBBR with 4.375 cuft of kaldness media between the two.

Hopefully get to take down the start up sysyem and regain more planting space.

Fish are a nit stressed, but will lnow more in the morning.

And build a little covered deck off the back to protect the rear door to the dog area.

I'll finish the deck floor and roof and then pour pad for the stairs. Then Ill stain for enhancement and UV protection.

Looks like you have it figured out on adding construction to a modular home. I just love those Koi especially the silver ones.

It is pretty much self supporting except for a few screws (in fascia) to hold my ridge in place. Guess it goes for my rim against the house as well (although I hit the gap (mostly) between the permanent foundation and the bottom of the house)

My changes from yesterday with filtration seem to have been a step in the right direction for both my ammonia/nitrite have dropped a bit closer to zero.

Seeing how my sump filter (inside of house) handled the fish load of batch #1/#2, makes me look at adding something similar to the GH for O2/nitrification? Instead of relying upon diaphragm/blower type for my MBBR......

I'll be interested to see how everyone develops now that I can feed more and not have to worry as much about system parameters for added maintenance.

I like all of the variations of the Kikokuryu (look like they have a skeletal/bone pattern along the dorsal line). My favorite one that jumped ship a few weeks back had a wonderfully colorful pattern..... :sad: .....

Adam, those Kikokuryu are great looking fish, sadly no Koi allowed here, and a quite heavy fine if you're caught with any. :upset:

Where is here?

As for allowed species, Tilapia are considered invasive and not allowed in NM.
